The REDD solution
One of the areas under the UNFCCC where there has been progress in the last couple of years is REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation), whereby developed countries pay developing countries to conserve and restore their forests.
Adapting to change
Sustainably managing, conserving and restoring ecosystems so that they continue to provide the services that allow people to adapt to climate change is known as Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA). This approach builds on traditional knowledge, generates a range of social, economic and cultural benefits and helps to conserve biodiversity.
